I’m a long time armchair sailor and I love the variety presented in this show. Andy does such a great job of getting the best out of such a broad range of people and making sailing the most interesting pastime. I think will have to take a trip on one of your boats !! Keep up the good work. X

Nice episode, since you skipped the high latitude talk, you’ll have to cover that in a other episode :-)

Thank you so much for this podcast! I love it! Listening to Jake Beattie, I’ve falling in love with him, he seems to be an emotionally intelligent guy and of course I love that he is an adventurer sailor and so much more. I want a man like him! Regarding the podcast in general, I look forward to...Read full review »

You guys set the bar for sailing podcasts.

You are so young to already have acquired the talents and the empathy you have. The ability to know when to be silent and let a guest speak after you have directed them to that point through thoughtful, insightful questioning is a joy to listen to. I especially enjoy your guests who aren’t just...Read full review »

I have always loved this podcast. I will continue to listen, but the mono tone of Emma’s voice mixed with sometimes a monotone guest like Tania is the perfect recipe for a afternoon snooze. I miss when Andy would do the interviews and his ability to bring out the best information from the guest...Read full review »

Andy Schell and his team (every one of them) are so engaging, knowledgeable and enthusiastic on the Art of Seamanship it’s hard not to be seduced. Highly highly recommend listening!

I learned of this Podcast from a Crew Member while in the 2017 OPO Swan Program and has been with me through a freezing cold 2018 winter refit of my boat, SWANDA, in Jamestown, RI to becoming a key reference for boat ownership and my own development as an Offshore Sailor. In my opinion, 59 North...Read full review »

And is a great interviewer and his guest are interesting and some are iconic. It’s great that he has interviews some people that won’t be around for ever. The wokeness and slamming the “women’s” agenda none stop is definitely his right but gets old. Encourage and promote but remember men and...Read full review »

As a keen weekend sailor and an avid reader of stories, this gives you a taste of the true challenges that real sailors are taking on the whole time. Get closer to the madness! Love it.

Always high quality content! Seems the sponsorship spiels are getting a bit longer but hey, everyone has to pay the bills, and they’re easy to skip. Highly recommended show!!!

I just listened to your July 26th episode. It took over 10 minutes to get to the actual content. You have a lot going for you here. Your audio quality is good. You are interviewing great people. Just don't water it down with irrelevant information, especially at the intro.Read full review »
Mad Man Madison via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 09/04/21
Podcast was great before. Andy interviewing all the sailing hotshots was really fun to listen to. The interviews were really good and Andy has a talent for keeping the conversation going in and entertaining direction and keeping interviewees between the buoys if you will. However recently...Read full review »

I have enjoyed all these podcasts especially the ones related the episodes relate to sailing vs. the interviews as a new sailor. All of your team does a fine a very fine job!! Keep up the great work and may 2022 make up for 2021.
JohninErie via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 05/31/21
I’ve been listening to Andy’s pod cast for a few years now. He’s a great interviewer and asks questions you wouldn’t think to ask to get right to the heart of the voyage. We the best from all of us at Dunmore East Sea School.
Robert Marchant via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 05/26/21
After hearing the last podcast I felt compelled to say thanks and pass on a written appreciation of your work. The interview with Nikki Henderson was touching and spanned a good part of the depth of being human. Thanks for all the work that is put in.

Thank you for the articles, reports and interviews. For me, I especially love the inclusion of women sailors! Now, you are including me in the conversation(s) and analysis' of what it takes to sail successfully and how to pursue life at sea. Thank you! You've moved my dream closer to...Read full review »

I stopped listening once August started hosting the podcast. The archives are great. Some wonderful interviews.
mariah1947 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 12/19/20
My favorite sailing related podcast. It covers many aspects of sailing and very useful information. Andy is a great interviewer and so is August. I look forward to hearing a new episode while I am driving or working on my boat. Andy and August are A squared away.
bigcockmtnbiking via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 11/17/20
Watched initially on YouTube when August went aboard Uma and interviewed the young couple Kika and Dan while they sat together in Norway. Then, followed you guys - found Andy and the crew for the two boats . August is a calming and super knowledgeable voice for what it means to be a sailor and...Read full review »

Andy and his gang have introduced me to all my sailing heroes. Interviews are fantastic and very enlightening. In the end Andy is the real hero
::DO NOT BUY::. via Apple Podcasts · Ireland · 11/03/20
I just want to respond to Andy’s request for feedback on the work August has done since coming on board. August is a true delight and a nice contrast to Andy’s style. The two of you clearly work well together and there is a sense of mutual respect. August seems very knowledgeable, projects...Read full review »

This is my current favorite podcast- always fun to hear about ocean adventures, especially during Covid. The recent Kika and Dan episode was fabulous. Andy and August sound like genuinely good people, and a pleasure to listen to. You’ve got fans in LA!

Glad I found this podcast . I’m just getting into sailing.I really enjoyed the interview with Dylan Mcgaster plus all the other ones I’ve heard.
mgmpc via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 07/02/20
I like that Andy goes beyond just sailing and into topics like motives, leadership and psychology. Thanks for doing it!
BillyBobV in Nor-Cal via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/28/20
Recently started listening. I found it so compelling that I will be going all the way back to episode 1 and starting from the beginning.
KimSails via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 06/28/20
Andy, Thank you so much for this interview with Bill Pinckney. Because of the controversy about who was the first African-American to circumnavigate solo, I had some biases about Capt. Pinckney. However, after this interview, I find him endearing and gracious. I have a new found respect and...Read full review »

This is the best podcast I’ve ever heard. It has comical, sad, and even frustrated moments. My favorite episode is the Bob Shepton. Can’t wait for every new episode. I will always listen to this show.

Overall enjoyable for anyone interested in this niche topic. I’ve learned a lot! I wish they spent time editing and making it tighter so that episodes were a little less rambling. I think it’s inspiring that they’re living their dreams, authentic life and all that, but it’s also a bit hard to...Read full review »
